Kellie Thomas has been doing TaeKwon Do since she was eleven years old. Now as a 6th-degree black belt, Kellie teaches all ages from toddlers to grandparents in Addison, Chittenden, and Rutland counties. Through TKD Kicks Kellie organizes a break-a-thon each year, during which for every $10 her students raise they get to break a board using their TaeKwon Do skills. The money is then donated to a local group or organization. To learn more about TKD Kicks and the annual break-a-thons visit tkdkicks.org!
